The Lebanese resistance movement, Hezbollah, has denounced Monday terrorist blasts in eastern Lebanon, saying that some countries and entities in the Middle East and across the world are providing terrorists with covert and overt support.
The condemnation came after at least six civilians were killed and 19 others injured when four terrorists detonated their explosives in a crowded area in al-Qaa village, a few kilometers from the border with Syria.
In a statement on Monday, Hezbollah said this crime was the outcome of a terrorist ideology which has been spreading across the region like cholera and has turned into a serious threat to regional nations.
Such a Takfiri ideology, which poses a threat to all areas in Lebanon and its people from all sects and with any affiliation, is the result of secret and overt support by countries and entities in the region and elsewhere in the world for criminal and murderous terrorists, it added.
The statement noted that these countries are providing terrorist groups with arms, equipment, and media support as well as psychological and political protection.
Hezbollah stressed the importance of a forceful campaign against Takfiri ideology, calling for the identification of the perpetrators of the terrorist explosions in al-Qaa Village and their plots in order to prevent the recurrence and spread of acts of terror in the country.
It said some politicians and their supporters in Lebanon seek to mislead others in a bid to conceal and cover the malevolent ideology of terrorists and justify their atrocities.
Following the Monday terrorist explosions, Lebanese Prime Minister Tammam Salam declared Tuesday as a day of national mourning, reports say.
Lebanon has often seen the infiltration of Takfiri elements from neighboring Syria into its territory, where they attack the civilian population or security forces with bombings.
On June 12, a bomb explosion rocked the western part of the Lebanese capital, Beirut, but did not cause any casualties.
Last November, however, more than 40 people were killed and dozens of others wounded after two bombings, claimed by the Takfiri Daesh militants, targeted a security post in the Bourj el-Barajneh area in the southern suburb of the Lebanese capital.
